Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) – The Good – Superoxide – The Bad – Disease – The Ugly

We can’t live without oxygen. Our cells rely on oxygen as the final acceptor of electrons in respiration, allowing us to extract far more energy from food than would be possible without oxygen. But oxygen is also a dangerous compound. Reactive forms of oxygen, such as superoxide (oxygen with an extra electron), leak from the respiratory enzymes and wreak havoc on the cell. This superoxide can then cause mutations in DNA or attack enzymes that make amino acids and other essential molecules. This is a significant problem: Continue reading

Cancer – Free Radicals – Reactive Oxygen Species – Killer Cells – SOD – How Are They Linked?

Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a phrase used to describe a number of reactive molecules and free radicals derived from molecular oxygen. The production of oxygen-based radicals is the bane to all aerobic species. These molecules, produced as byproducts during the mitochondrial electron transport of aerobic respiration or by oxidoreductase enzymes and metal-catalyzed oxidation, have the potential to cause a number of deleterious events.

Understanding The CC Formula – Combining Chemistry – Cell Biology – Natural Science

The Krebs cycle, also known as the citric acid cycle or the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA cycle), describes the metabolic pathways of the higher-order plants and animals in which available fuels, oxygen, water, and other essentials to life are utilized in an aerobic mode. The metabolic system is a well-documented and familiar process involving the basic steps to produce a “higher” form of life. The protection provided by at least 32 steps in the process provides a system that protects the oxygen-driven plants and animals. Continue reading

The CC Treatment uses Superoxide Dismutase as a Target for the Selective Killing of Cancer Cells

The topic of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) as a target for the selective killing of cancer cells was published in the US Library of Medicine in 2001 by the Department of Experimental Therapeutics, The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston 77030, USA. Now almost 12 years later the Superoxide Dismutase – SOD is one of the technologies in the invention of the CC Formula as described in several areas of the patent filings. Continue reading
